Throwback Thursday Vintage RV: 1960 Crown Coach

by | Dec 8, 2016 | RV Spotlight | 0 comments

Own a piece of history with this classic bus conversion. This 1960 Crown Motor Coach 42′ has plenty of fame to its name, making it our Throwback Thursday find of the week.

Built in 1960 for comedian Red Skelton, this conversion vehicle has spent most of its 17,000 miles traveling through sunny California. Since retiring from its comedy-circuit days, this bus has been restored and upgraded to include all the luxury amenities that you’d find in a modern motor home. Powered by a 855 Series Cummins mid-engine Pancake diesel with a 3-stage Jake Brake, this 10-speed with overdrive can easily cruise at 67 MPH. The Ross power steering and air ride rear suspension make it smooth and easy to drive. The bus also includes a 4,000lb power lift gate to carry your golf cart or motorcycles.


Inside the motor home you’ll find beautiful Corian countertops, sinks, a custom shower, laminate walls, and unique African Mahogany accents. The appliances have all been upgraded to include a convection microwave, stainless steel refrigerator, 2 pc. stacked washer & dryer and LED lighting. The spacious living area includes a 48″ flat screen TV, surround system, sleep sofa and Euro-style recliner. Throughout the motor coach you’ll find plenty of storage and cargo space for all your extra gear or equipment.

It’s not often you find a classic RV restored to such great condition. This conversion bus is great for long road trips, with its 2 air conditioners and sleeping space for 4 people. You can make this 1960 Crown Motor Coach 42′ yours for $87,500. This RV is on sale now at The Motorhome Brokers in North Carolina. For more information or to make an offer, give them a call at 888-294-9669.
